MARCH 1 – 31, 2018

GOAL:  $10,000     RAISED TO DATE:  $4582.00

 March is an uplifting month as spring approaches, days grow longer and summer is just around the corner. It reminds us of our adult literacy students who blossom as their skills develop, opening up opportunities in work, school and their everyday lives.  This March you too can help our adult students blossom by participating in our Fundraising Campaign.

 A portion of these funds will be allocated towards obtaining assessments by a psychometrist for some of our students with learning disabilities. As a learner-centred, one-to-one program, these assessments will provide us with the best strategies for teaching to their particular needs and improve their overall literacy successes.  These assessments also reduce barriers and open doors to further education and employment as with documentation, accommodations must be made as per the Ontario Human Rights Code.

As a non-profit, registered charity, serving the community since 1987, we need your help.

Our Mission

‘EYLE’s adult literacy, numeracy and computer skills program transforms lives and enhances self-worth by empowering individuals to reach their full potential.’

We help adults improve their reading, writing and basic math.  We also offer computer-based training to our literacy students.  Operating as a charity in East Toronto since 1987, we have helped over a thousand adults build better lives.

Our clients meet weekly in one-to-one sessions with trained, volunteer tutors.  They follow an individualized training plan to meet their literacy goals.

Did you know?

42% of Canadian adults between 16-65 years have low literacy skills.  They can not read or write well enough to:

  • apply for jobs
  • read a newspaper
  • write a letter
  • fill out forms
  • do banking

Our services are free to clients because of the generous support of our funders and private donors.

This Employment Ontario program is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario and through the Canada-Ontario Job Fund Agreement.
